Church Christmas Program

video
This year Ethan performed in his first Christmas program.  The 2 year olds sang "Happy Birthday Jesus" with some help from the 3's, 4's and 5's.  Ethan is 3 years old, but is techinically in the 2 year old class because of his birthday.  Next year, he will be a donkey with the other 3s.

Big Brother

Ethan is preparing to be a Big Brother.

Gentry Zoo

We went with the Symonds family to the drive thru zoo in Gentry one Sunday in September.

I guess he thought I had something to feed him!


This monkey was about the size of my hand and was wearing a tiny diaper!

Couldn't resist taking a picture of this sign!

Cousin has arrived!!

Ethan proudly announces the arrival of his precious cousin....
Williams "Wills" Carvajel Te

I was there for his arrival!
Sunday, July 24, 2011 at 9:55 a.m.


We took Ethan to visit after they went home.
He kept calling Wills "my baby".  "My baby" crying, I hold "my baby", etc.

I realize that I am a little bias, but he is so beautiful!!

Vacation

We flew to Florida!
Airport entertainment...the car at DFW and the castle at XNA.  Of course we had to be delayed.  That seems to be a normal occurrence when flying in or out of DFW.


 Ethan on the airplane....he LOVED it!

View from our balcony! 

The three "Nemos" were part of the decor. 
Ethan drug them all over the condo and slept with all of them.




Enjoying the beach!

We rented bikes.  They have an 18 mile bike path that runs down 30A.  Ethan loved to "Bi-cycle", so much that he even napped one day.  (Yes, that is a pink helmet!  The bikes were delivered to our condo while we were on the beach.  Ethan didn't mind.) 

 A park outside of Alys Beach had this random hill and a path that wrapped around it.

Ethan at the top yelling "Super" as in Superman!
